Wonderful selection of truffles in nice presentation box with subtle hints of puddings
on 18 June 2015
My wife bought me this selection box for my birthday, having never tried Montezuma chocolates before I am now a complete convert, these truffles are seriously good quality despite their flavours being perhaps a little on the subtle side.
First impressions raised expectations, just opening the box to find truffles neatly wrapped in tissue paper oozed quality, then the truffles themselves just looked like they were going to taste great.
In the box you get 16 truffles, each measuring roughly just under 3cm diameter each, with 4 of each of the following flavours:
Apple Crumble – Milk chocolate with apple and caramelised hazelnuts
Eton Mess – Dark chocolate with strawberry and meringue
Black Forest- Dark and white chocolate with Kirsch cherries
Lemon Meringue – Dark and white chocolate with lemon and meringue
The flavours are nice but really are subtle and I feel somewhat lost and fighting with the strong chocolate taste of the truffles, with the kirsch in the black forest being by far the strongest flavour of them all.
Whilst I still firmly stand by the fact that these are some of the nicest truffles I’ve had in months, their flavour does fall short a little of their promise of ‘British puddings collection’. If Montezuma’s had titled this box, “really tasty truffles in a thick lovely chocolate shell with subtle hints of pudding flavours” then, yes the name isn’t as catchy, but it would’ve been top marks from me as they are high quality and delicious truffles whilst having only subtle flavours, therefore still very highly recommended.
